Best Answer

Mineral water will be more dense than distilled water. The disolved material adds mass, but does not increase the volume.

What is the difference between mineral water and distilled water?

mineral water contains salts. Distilled water does not contain any salts, it's just water. And bottled water comes in a bottle. As a "food" item I expect it has to pass food safety standards, but otherwise it could be anything. Mineral water is water that has had minerals dissolved into it as a result of being stored underground. Spring water is mineral water for example. Depending on where the mineral water has come from effects the mineral content of the water. Distilled water on the other hand has been distilled. That mean it has been turned into steam, then the steam is allowed to cool turning it back into water in a clean container. What happens as a result is that only the water turns into steam leaving the mineral content behind giving you pure water with no mineral content.

Which distilled water or mineral water is good for radiator?

You want to use DISTILLED WATER - any of the chain autoparts stores should have it in gallons. Mineral water has, well, minerals. Distilled water has close to all removed. Mineral water will corrode the cooling system and cause scale build-up. 1/8" of scale has the same insulating factor as 4" of iron - you do not want that.
